Spot on Little Spotted Sheep
A lady asked me if I could make spotted sheep, and could they be a little bigger than my "Wee Little Sheep". I was excited to try my hand at a new way to make the sheep, and spot them. I just needed a whole day to work on the little sheep, and finally, a perfect day! A rainy day that was also a day we were able to stay home and had no other obligations. (You have no idea how rare that is for us!) JOY! I fed my animals, had a cup or 3 of coffee and began to work on my idea. I think these little spotted sheep are pretty cute. Their wool is 100% Jacob Sheep wool, and they are 7" from front to back, and 6" high. So they are spotted and double the size of my Wee Little Sheep. I like the raffia around their neck,it looks like hay, and if you are around real sheep much you know there is always hay or grass stuck in their wool....
I wonder if we, the Sheep of God's pasture, with our spots, cause Him to smile at us....I know He must have a sense of humor, He DID create me..."A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance." Proverbs 15:13 "Laughter does not mean you are ignoring pain, living in denial, or just not aware of the troubles around you..For me, laughter is how we take a much-needed break from the heartache, such that when we turn to face it again, it has by some miracle grown smaller in size and intensity, if not disappeared altogether."
